Today is out last day here is Zambia (I am pretty sure it is in the same line as Egypt and that is saying something coming from me). We woke up early and had our last breakfast (my mom and sister can certainly do with a break from the waffles) 😉 So after breakfast we went see knife cutting edge and put on our raincoats to get wet my the waterfall for the last time. Then around 10:00 am we went back to our rooms to pack and leave our hotel by 11:00 am a shuttle took us to the airport. The airport is so small and they are so freaked out about security we had to go through customs twice! Then we had to walk to our plane and we our seats where at the back of the aircraft. So we had a horrible taking off and it felt like my stomach was dropping sometimes. Landing was very smooth in Johannesburg even though we nearly missed our flight to Cape Town. Anyway BA messed up my meals again on the way down. The joy! So had to eat wheat the whole day. Once we landed in Johannesburg got our bags and basically ran across the airport, quickly check in and ran through customs luckily we made it to the line. So we weren’t really late just made it for the last boarding.
It felt so good to be going home. I had such an awesome holiday and this is something I will never forget.
Here is for the next adventure!:D

Last full day in Zambia. Walked down to the Boiling Pot this morning and went half way across the boarder post of Zimbabwe, we got a bridge pass because one can walk half way across the bridge until one has to go through passport control and get passports stamped. Seriuously I took too many photos. Then after been hot and tired we walked back to the resort for lunch and a cold beer.
It is sad that it is our last day but I am going back to an awesome semester, seeing my gran, Dan, Zoe and baby Harry. Oh, and going home to an amazing boyfriend! I cant wait to see him. It is so beautiful here.
Going on 2 sunset cruises for sun downers later this afternoon. The sunset cruises where amazing! Drinking wine and taking photos of hippos, crocodiles and birds. It was stunning and got some awesome pics.
Got back to the resort around 7:45 pm and had supper. My last pudding for the month!
Afterwards went to check Facebook and then headed off too bed early.
This morning after breakfast we went on a boat trip to Livingstone Island. Left from the Royal Livingstone Hotel. We had to wear raincoats, because we were right by the falls and we got soaked! We had to walk through mud bare foot! The rainbow was amazing, such an experience! We had lunch on the island afterwards (it was early lunch) and then got back to the main land around 1:00 pm.
Spent the afternoon chilling, buying copper bracelets. At around 3:30 pm went to the Royal Livingstone Hotel for high tea, awesome but never again! We walked there and back amongest the Impala. At around 6:30 pm went to use the internet and get onto Facebook to answer messages.
Elephant in water
The Falls in full force
Then had a late supper. I am so over sweet stuff!
This morning we woke up early for breakfast. This place is beautiful! Soon we heading out to see the Victoria Falls and to get wet.
We had to put on these long yellow rain coat (Harry Potter style as my sister put it). We walked across the bridge in the mist and spray of the waterfall, it felt like rain. It is amazing and I got soaked, but dry on the inside. I took so many photos, its hard to explain if one hasn’t been there.
Afterwards we just chilled and read. Then we went to have lunch by the pool and afterwards my mom and I walked around. Later Graeme went on a microlight and everyone went with him so I had sometime by myself to write and read by the pool. Only wrote about two pages though.
Managed to get on the hotel internet this evening. One get the first 15 mins for free until then one has to pay and I didn’t want my dad to pay my internet bill. Because everything is double there. Example Zambia Kwacha Kr18 then it would be R36. Like Ciders where kr 36 at the hotel so it would have been R72! It was like wow!!

Rainbow that only comes out at 10:00 am.

Victoria Falls from Zambia side
So this morning we left Cape Town at the crack of dawn to fly to Zambia. Our flight left at 7:30 am (Don’t ask) so we left home at 5:30 am to be at Cape Town International Airport for our two hour flight to Johannesburg. Then a connecting flight to Livingstone, Zambia for 5 days. The flights weren’t too bad. Landing in Livingstone was kind of painful. I hate landing with a passion. So then they mucked up my dietary requirements. Luckily for breakfast on the way to Johannesburg I got a meal from business class which had no wheat in it.
Landing in Livingstone was interesting because the airport was so tiny, but they are building a new one. Its such a weird town. A typical town in Africa.
We got a shuttle to the hotel which was the Zambezi Sun (3 star). Next door hotel was the Royal Livingstone Hotel (4 star). We check in had lunch by the pool and then unpacked.
The Victoria Falls has only one word to it “Amazing!” We didn’t get too close because one has to wear rain coats because the spray is so strong.
I then managed to have some alone time with my music and writing.
Then at 6:30 pm we went to supper (3 course meal buffet) and then after supper we turned in early.
Another adventure is coming soon and I wont tell you what it is so watch this space to find out.
